Serato DJ users can reach new heights of spontaneity and creativity with the Pioneer Digital DJ-SP1 the add-on controller designed for seamless access to the software’s four decks and inspiring performance features.
DJs simply add the DDJ-SP1 to a set up that supports mixing and scratching with Serato DJ – for example a laptop, timecode CDJ/turntables and DJM-900 mixer or DDJ-S1 controller. They can then get hands on with pre-mapped buttons and dials to trigger the software’s six samples, eight Hot Cues and over 30 FX Powered by iZotope – without the need to touch the keyboard or mouse.
The DDJ-SP1 adds a further physical dimension to performance thanks to the dynamic Performance Pads: sixteen rubber LED pads that let DJs trigger seven modes – Hot Cue, Slicer, Roll, Sampler, Hot Loop, Auto Loop and Manual Loop. Velocity Mode lets them control the volume of samples by how hard they hit the pads. Plus, precision loops, scratches and reverses are made easy by Slip Mode, which silently continues playback and brings the track back in at exactly the right point.
Like its forerunner, the DDJ-SX, the DDJ-SP1 was built to withstand the rigours of the booth, with a durable and stylish aluminium faceplate and rubber pots. With a slim build and instantaneous set up this compact controller is a perfectly portable addition to any DJ booth.
